Teaching

No courses with physical presence. This includes all types of courses: VO, UE, PR, PP, SE, EX, BA and MA as well as combinations thereof.

Where possible, courses must be switched to digital methods of teaching and learning (BOKU learn, streaming, autonomous learning units in connection with virtual consultations, instructional videos and self-evaluation tests for students, ...). Students must be informed of any changed modes of instruction by the course administration via BOKUonline.

Exams should be hold in alternative ways (e.g digital form, skype, seminar works). Postponing is exceptional.

From now on until further notice, final exams (defensiones and vivas) can only be carried out by video conference. Students who do not agree to this examination method can be unsubscribed by the Dean of Studies by sending an e-mail to the study servicesIt is requested to inform the Examination Senate at the same time.

If the conduct of a video conference is not possible (e.g. obstacles with an examiner) or has to be terminated (e.g. technical problems), the chairperson of the examination senate must inform the dean of studies by email to the study services. In the event of termination, a protocol must be attached.

We are also committed to reducing contact through physical attendance and mobility in the service area. Please direct your inquiries as usual via phone or preferably via email to:
